SWOT Analysis:
The SWOT analysis of organization is as follows.

Strength:
MCB is among the largest private banks of Pakistan with a deposit base of millions this
shows the constant increase in its growth from 1947 to now.

Through its online system MCB provides the fast and easy services to customers.

MCB provides lot of services better then its competitors like, cash over counter, western
union, online remittance etc.

MCB employees are well trained.

The working environment is very good and efficient.

Well educated and New employees are hired.

employees are increasing its reputation MCB quality management, products and services.

Online system is very good in MCB thats why it sells online baking software and earns
profit.

Lots of branches of MCB are placed at good location and have good buildings.

MCB has also on track ATM in its different branches and the helpline works 24 hours
with the ATM.

Domestic branches as well as MCB abroad branches are working very well.
33

Weakness:

There is low level of advertising of products and services in the MCB.

MCB is short-staffed. Numbers of employees are short.

MCB is not centralized in decision making. Manger cannot take idea decision as regards
different situations like for giving finance.

Most of clients are not well know about the products and services of MCB, it is due to
very low level of service and promotional activity.

Mismanagement of time is another large mistake in MCB branches, the bank official time
of closing is 5:30pm but due unprofessional conduct of time allocation staff is normally
on their seats till 7:00 or 8:00o clock.

Opportunities:
MCB has well experienced IT programmers. MCB can train their old well
experienced employees to give support.

MCB has biggest network, due to this it can take benefit from restructuring.

MCB has biggest network but not its all branches are online if they become on line
then its business can improve up.

Government of UAE has declared free industrial estate, MCB has already branch
there and it can get benefit and open one more that location.

MCB adjoining with competition it can have to take powerful marketing to increase
its business and compete with the competitors.

Mobile banking is the concept that has been started to final its extraction in the
banking sector so MCB can gain this chance.

New client friendly products and services can be introduced.

34

Threats:
Threats are exterior factors in the environment, which are not in favor of the company,
which can seriously damage the companys ability to serve its clients in the right way and
slower down its progress.

Due to unbalanced economic and market situation like inflation and job loss, saving
are declining it can be a threat for banking business.

The lots of competitors are increasing day by day.

Good experienced employees leave because they receive good offer from others.

There are lots of competitions due to privatized banks which are available with new
technology.

Political volatility is also another threat. Government policies rule and regulation
change with the change of government.

Competitors come with more in market products and services which attracts the
clients.

Environment is quickly shifting and competitors react it very fast.

Due to changing in the activities of clients must understand that what they want. And
what they face is difficult.

Summary of Learning:
MCB constantly have been educating its employees. It has trained so many staff members with
the latest IT programs that provide participant with the skills and knowledge of the constantly
changing IT world. I have learned so many skills and knowledge during my internship in MCB.
Being a student of master in Business Administration in University of Gujrat, I got a chance to
work in challenging environment of MCB as an prisoner. It was a great chance for me to learn
35

more skills and shine my skills which I have learned from UOG.
What skills and qualifications you think that you have gained from internship?
In the six weeks of my internship I gain many skills and experience. I have learned sagacious
skills of working. I also grow such information about job in banking sector and found that job is
much related to my business administration study. In other skills I got the skills like
communication in which I have learnt how to communicate with clients, and with the boss of
organization. I also got skills like dealing with the clients and I think it will be very favorable for
me in my future association. I also get more information about financial study and issue in our
state. It is a enormous experience for me to work in a financial organization. There I also got
information that how financial institutions work and how they are linked with the central bank of
country like state bank of Pakistan. I also got information and knowledge about different
products and services presented to clients and their remuneration. The basic skills are as follows
which I have learned:
Communication skills:
I have improved my communication skills up to high level. In daily routine of bank, I had met a
number of people as well as with high professional. So discussion with all these increases my
communication skills. In bank I prepared reports, met with clients so all these improved my
learning at communication level.
Team work skills:
A single person can not do every thing better but a group of people can do it in an easier way
with a group effort. As banking system is group work procedure so I learned how to work in a
supportive manner with the other members of group.

this knowledge.

problems in a daily schedule. All the four principles I saw in banking system.
Other then this I learned lot of skills and work during my internship.

Recommendations and suggestions:


Recommendations and suggestions are very important for any organization. When someone
studied organization deeply it will be considered as useless work without giving suggestions and
recommendations that can finally benefit the organization.
I suggest the following things should be made better in order to make better in order to make
MCB more progressive.

MCB should focus on its marketing tricks and improve the performance of this
department.

MCB should increase its promotional activities like advertise its products on TV, news
paper, radio, magazines and broachers etc.

Managers should have authority to make decision

MCB should make that strategy which can be helpful in days of inflation and job loss.

MCB should take plan steps to compete their competitor in the market.

The customer service department should be made more efficient.

MCB should inspire its employees through rewards and benefits.

MCB should train its employees when required so they can learn the about the new
technology.

MCB should raise its products and services.

Management should be decentralized.

CONCLUSION
37

MCB is one of the leading banks of Pakistan. MCB soon earned the reputation of a solid and
conservative financial institution managed by expatriate executives During the last fifteen years,
the Bank has concentrated on growth through improving service quality, investment in
technology and people utilizing its extensive branch network, developing a large and stable
deposit base.
My basic purpose of this internship was to learn about the working of bank. During my
internship I got knowledge about general banking. Staff member of MCB is cooperative with me
and really help me to achieve my objective.
My experience of internship at MCB was interesting. MCB is a really good bank as everyone
respects each other which is in my point of view is a good quality of good organization. The
environment is really cooperative and comfortable but it is bit strict as they believe that little
strictness must be there for success otherwise employees will not work properly. MCB is a good
bank for long-term career. Overall working environment is comfortable. Behavior of Manager is
very polite and caring towards their employees. Employees are given the benefits like bonus, and
increments.
